It's nice to see this program, but what about the commercials?!? Internet Archive should have included the commercials of the time, in order to make watching this series a better experience for the web surfer. Plus, the series is simply a "Gilligan's Island" remake, but with a western setting.

There is nothing to love about this show.
It is a showcase for the creative abilities of Sherwood Schwartz (and apparently one ohis relatives since there is another Schwartz listed in the credits).
I do not see how "My Mother the Car" could have possibly been any worse than this.
I tried to watch the whoe episode but, it was just too painful.

This was by the creators of Gilligan's Island? Heck, this IS Gilligan's Island. The characters are all exactly the same, with Bob Denver reprising his Gilligan role. The only difference is the setting. It's rather sad that the creators couldn't come up with a new idea, but only rehashed an old one. It has its moments, but having watched Gilligan's Island, I can't enjoy this as something relatively new and funny.

Despite being created by the same person who gave us "The Brady Bunch" and "Gilligan's Island", and featuring an impressive cast with Forest Tucker and Bob Denver, "Dusty's Trail" still only lasted one season.
That's shame, since although it will never be considered "Quality TV", This show has arguably aged better than some shows the critics liked, and is fun to watch.

The show ran in first-run syndication, and was produced in colour. It was a "Sitcom-Western", and was produced on a low budget.

It's really only worth 3/5, But I give it 4/5 due to the fact that it's kinda rare.
